Our psychologists provide a wide range of comprehensive child evaluations, including: (1) Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluations, (2) ADHD evaluations, (3) psychoeducational evaluations, and (4) psychological evaluations. We also provide family therapy such as Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and feeding therapy. More information on all of our services can be found below.
The purpose of an Autism diagnostic evaluation is to discover whether your child has any symptoms of ASD, how many symptoms they have, and how those symptoms may impact your child's ability to fully interact with their environment.
The purpose of an ADHD diagnostic evaluation is to identify if your child has any symptoms of ADHD, how many symptoms they have, and how those symptoms may impact your child's ability to function at home, school, and within the community.
Our psychoeducational evaluations are a comprehensive assessment of your child's cognitive, academic, and socio-emotional functioning. These assessments are designed to evaluate any academic or learning concerns for your child.
Psychological assessments are designed to assist your family in the accurate diagnosis of conditions such as depression, anxiety, and behavioral concerns. These evaluations assist in the determination of the best treatment options (if needed).
PCIT is an evidence-based treatment designed for caregivers and their children (2-7 years of age) with social, emotional, and/or behavioral difficulties. The average length of PCIT treatment is 14-16 weeks, with sessions occurring once per week.
Feeding therapy is a specialized therapy for babies and children to help them develop normal eating patterns and behaviors. Feeding therapy is used to treat feeding refusal that is not due to an underlying medical disorder such as oral motor deficits.
